My mother attended their 2pm snorkeling trip to Captain Cook. The place was a bit hard to find (go to the blue building) and there is sparse parking. They tell you to arrive 15 minutes early. It's probably good to arrive before that. The crew are fantastic and the trip is perfect. We stopped a few times in the water to look at whales AND sharks. This is a snorkeling trip for even out of shape people or older folks. The step into the boat wasn't bad. And they have steps for you into the water. They supply fruit and nonalcoholic beverages on the way to Captain Cook. They give you floating noodles, flippers, and snorkeling gear. They even had prescription goggle mask things for my mom (they had multiple ones for her to try). You snorkel for about an hour. Getting in & out of the water was really a breeze, even if you aren't in stellar condition. They keep an eye out on you (both in the water & out). There are nice restrooms on board and cocktails available for purchase.

The crew was super helpful and friendly! They were also very skilled in handling the boat. The girls were so strong! They tried to anticipate your needs and concerns and would come up to you if you seemed confused or worried. The cruise was very organized. They explained everything that was going to happen. They were super vigilant over us when we were snorkeling! The boat was as clean as a whistle! The bathroom was amazingly clean and stylish! Surprise for a boat. I was afraid that the ride would be bumpy but it wasn’t. It was very enjoyable and beautiful. I would return in an instant if I wanted to go snorkeling again! Our first afternoon cruise was cancelled so they upgraded us to a morning tour for free. This was a longer tour and included a nice deli lunch! Thank you so much to the crew! It was the highlight of our vacation!

This was a top notch experience! The crew was caring and knowledgeable. The boat was new, clean and comfortable. The snorkel gear seemed new and clean. The snorkel area had beautiful coral and a plethora of fish. But most of all, I appreciated their help with my 5 year old out in the water. They take their job seriously making my whole family feel safe. We all had a terrific time and would definitely do it again.
